Mention adidas collabs and the first thought that follows is probably YEEZY. After Kanye, maybe Pharell's work with the Three Stripes springs to mind. But when it comes to adidas collaborations, those two names are just the tip of the iceberg. It's easy to get lost in the vast expanse that is the list of brands the German sportswear giant has worked with on new sneakers and apparel, and you'd be forgiven for missing a few of them.

Which is why we're putting the spotlight on some of the adidas collaborations that perhaps don't get as much airtime as they should. From an alliance with Yohji Yamamoto to creative outputs alongside the Italian label Fiorucci, we revel in the adidas collabs you shouldn't overlook.

From jackets to sneakers, shop adidas collaborations below.

Y-3

Not quite slept on, but certainly less hyped than YEEZY nowadays, adidas' collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto (Y-3) started back in 2003. Far ahead of its time, Y-3 was an early example of the sportswear and fashion hybrid that would come to dominate the sartorial world. The recently released Y-3 Yuben Mid is a great example of the melding of classic sports cuts with fashion apparel, making use of the basketball-style silhouette and dressing it with premium leather, while the Rhisu Run packs adidas' innovative running technology into a sleek, modern footwear piece.

424

While adidas's illustrious relationship with Y-3 goes back a bit, its fling with 424 is much more of a new thing. First joining up in 2016, 424 and adidas added new spins on the SC Premiere and Pro Model to its offspring, dressing up them up in premium leather finery.

OAMC

Now this is the real baby of the collabs. We first saw the result of an OAMC and adidas match-up during the former's Fall/Winter 2019 show in Paris. Stealing the show through a future-forward silhouette that takes the Supercourt RX midsole off the court and combines it with a tech-leaning outsole. The pair added new colorways of its Type 0-1 and Type 0-2 sneakers this year.

Alexander Wang

Now in its sixth and (sadly) final season, the Alexander Wang and adidas collaboration is coming to an end. Which is reason enough to afford it your attention for one last sitting. Unlike most of those long-running shows you've spent what seems like half a lifetime on, this finale won't disappoint.

Fiorucci

Another young collab, adidas and Milan-based label Fiorucci first got together at the start of 2019. Since then, the duo has dropped two collections. Bold, bright, and statement-making, these collections boast standout graphics and unmissable colorways. Thew two pieces below are good examples.
